Gamethread: Portland Timbers Vs. Chivas USA 5/12/13

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

It's game time! Chivas USA are on the road, facing the Portland Timbers (2 pm PT, Univision Deportes/MLS Live). The teams are in considerably different form at the moment, with the Goats on a slump, and the Timbers unbeaten in eight games. Still, we don't play the games on paper - we play them on the field!

If you missed either of them, be sure to check out the Three Questions exchange from Friday and the match preview from yesterday.

I should be here for the normal commentary and basic play-by-play during the match, but I may cut it close with non-soccer matters in the meantime. Still, if I'm on or not, feel free to comment on the lineups, the match, Chelís' wardrobe, whatever strikes your fancy! Let's hope for a full three points today for the Goats!

And Happy Mother's Day to the moms out there!

There's only one thing left to say: Arriba las Chivas!
